Prior Learning Assessment (PLA)
Albany State University strives to help adult learners obtain a college degree by awarding credit for prior learning, which is learning that has occurred outside of a traditional higher education setting. ASU accepts many forms of prior learning, including CLEP exams, AP credit, challenge exams, DANTES, and military credit according to the American Council on Education’s recommendations. A portfolio method is also available to further promote prior learning at ASU. For more information about PLA, contact the Director of Military and Adult Education.
